They talked about us
Needless to say, I love India. I guess the interest and passion came thanks to both my parents. My mom has a keen interest in Indian craft and culture and growing up we visited every craft exhibition and cultural event in the city. While mom and dad both enjoy travelling, dad is a very passionate traveller and an Encyclopaedia on almost every topic in the universe (our customers who visited Dhoop while he managed the store for nine years will vouch for that) and our summer holidays were spent in exotic and gorgeous destinations within India, that he would have researched extensively. I think these real journeys, were the beginnings of my interest in India, its history, craft, culture and aesthetic.
